STORMS HAPPENING NORTH & WEST OF LOCAL AREA… Severe thunderstorms are moving east across central Mississippi as of 8:05PM. At the moment, there is only one tornado warning in effect in MS for parts of Attala County southwest of Starkville. Numerous severe thunderstorm warnings are in effect, however. We’re also monitoring small supercell-like storms in the northern half of Alabama. A severe thunderstorm warning is in effect for parts of Lawrence County, inlcuding Moulton, until 8:15PM.
SHOWERS & STORMS POSSIBLE OVER NEXT FEW HOURS… I won’t be surprised to see a few scattered showers and thunderstorms develop across Clarke, Washington, and Mobile counties over the next few hours ahead of the main line of storms. I also expect a tornado watch to probably be issued likely between 11PM and midnight for our local area.
TIMING OF SEVERE WEATHER… This has not changed since this morning. The 12 hour window in which severe weather is most likely is from 1AM to 1PM Sunday, with the core risk being 4AM to Noon. Please keep in mind that is the “severe weather timing” and not RAIN timing. Rain is likely intermittently long before that timeframe. Scattered showers and storms under severe limits are possible later this evening. The severe weather risk will ramp up after 10PM.
